After dinner at Un Mundo one evening, S and I noticed a new ice cream shop in the plaza across the street – Lil’ Dipper. It was still during one of the many heat waves we had last month, so I sort of dragged him over to check it out.
There are a ton of different flavors – they serve organic Double Rainbow and Cascade Glacier brand ice creams, as well as Coconut Bliss vegan frozen desserts. Also on the menu, ice cream sandwiches featuring Le Chef Bakery cookies, which are baked on-site.
We sampled a few flavors, and I decided on a cookies & cream “mini” ice cream sandwich – which is actually served in a cup since it’s only 1 cookie.
I loved the flavor of this Double Rainbow cookies & cream! The ice cream itself was quite smooth and soft, almost like soft-serve, which is the consistency that I like. S had a bite of this ice cream and promptly fell in love with it – and he doesn’t even like ice cream! He says that the chocolate cookies were what made it so good – they didn’t taste like typical Oreos and had a much more chocolatey flavor. However, I don’t think the snickerdoodle cookie was the best pairing since it had a strong cinnamon taste that didn’t go well with the ice cream, and I ended up eating the two separately.
So of course, ice cream has been on his mind since this initial visit, and we returned for some more ice cream shortly after. He went for a double scoop of cookies and cream this time, and wouldn’t even let me take a stand-alone photo. Thus I present S, the hand model.
He still loved it, and he talks about it to me pretty often which is hilarious, because he’s never shown this much love for ice cream before….
